Bruce Sandison is a wonderfully poetic writer on fishing and hillwalking but this book is packed with practical information on places to fish rather than enjoyable prose.

The book is very cleverly laid out and much more useful in my opinion than previous editions. There is an exhaustive index that will take you to details of the water you are looking for if you know its name. On the other hand if you are looking speculatively for somewhere to fish in a particular area, the book is divided into segments based on OS sheets. Such a wonderful idea this I think. There is a map at the front giving the names and the numbers of each OS sheet tallying with page numbers in the book, so you can quickly find the patch you are interested in and begin teasing out the prospects of every blue splodge or squiggle on the map.

Each water comes with details on location, access, where to get permission if its needed, what you are likely to catch, phone numbers and permit details.

The only area Sandison is sketchy on in my opinion is his advice on flies and tactics. He tends to favour old-fashioned wet fly patterns that many modern anglers may be less keen on, but its a minor point really.

This is a thoroughly comprehensive guide to the freshwater fishing of Scotland - over 5000 locations from the humblest lochan to the mightiest salmon beat. From put-and-take rainbow dubs to wild waters. Absolutley essential for anyone angling in Scotland. You can only marvel at the colossal amount of work that must have gone into putting all this together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for Kindle 13 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I already had this book in an earlier edition at home. When it came to a kindle version I thought "what a good idea" a useful portable version. Except it isn't because you cannot reference individual pages. It really shouldn't be on Kindle. Anyone listening out there?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!! A Must for a true Fly Fisherman. 20 Jan 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this because last year while staying in Kenmore, Scotland , I saw lots of rivers and Lochs that I did not have a clue if I could cast a Fly in. With this in the car this year it will be much easier.

Would recommend to anyone who fishes or plans to fish in Scotland.

I have an older edition of this and I am glad I got this one. Up to date giving all the details you will need to fish in Scotland I rely on this when I go off on most of my trips. Thanks Bruce.

Sandison has a habit of being very repetitive in the information he provides, while this is basically a guide to waters around Scotland it does become boring when he lists the same three flies over and over again, plenty details about the fishing though.
